On-site renewable industry at cliff edge

The Renewable Energy Association, representing the renewables industry, expressed astonishment and concern at the closure of Stream 2 support for PV under the Low Carbon Building Programme (LCBP).

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) have said that the scheme will not be extended and any remaining funds will be sent back to the Treasury, ahead of the introduction of as feed-in-tariff support scheme.

However, the REA recommends the immediate reallocation of remaining funds on a first come, first served basis so all microgeneration technologies can gain maximum benefit.

Philip Wolfe, REA’s Director General said: ‘This latest disaster in the Low Carbon buildings Programme is completely at odds with the Green New Deal we hear so much about.’
